    Netflix instant is for streaming videos...

    I called it "instant" since Netflix doesn't really distinguish between streaming and DVD rental unless you log into the site. Once logged in they have a button that allows one to add it to the instant queue or to "watch instantly" if your paying for that service.

    Great tip - so glad this finally made it to Netflix.

    For anyone who wants to keep up with what's just come out, without having to log-in, check out this page:

    I wish Netflix would tell you when something new comes out. A lot of good movies came out this week, including Equilibirum - not itself a great movie, but lots of guns.

    Caught it out of redbox last month. Good movie, and shows you can have realistic combat tactics without being boring.

    Yep, I usually hit up the newly available on instant Instantwatcher page to find the new Netflix content. Was shocked to see Act of Valor listed so soon, much as I was shocked to see Atlas Shrugged Part 1 listed on Mar 08, 2012 for streaming so soon after being in theaters.

    thank you, thank you, thank you. a thousand times, thank you! i've always thought netflix's "recently added" section sucked, especially since the pc version is usually a week or 2 behind what's shown on my ps3. i don't know why i never thought to look for an online source like this but i love you (in a strictly hetero way) for showing me the light.

    my God this is brilliant.

    Beer- I felt the same way when I found the site. For weeks I thought Netflix sucked because of lack of content. Ends up their "predictive" idea of what you want to watch varries way too much.

    Check that site every few weeks - it wont tell you everything that is new, but if you watch the top 10/20 you'll notice when other people have found something new.

    As an aside, I just finished the movie. Wow...thats really all I can say right now.

    Never tried the Netflix thing but after this thread, I signed up for the free trial.

    So far, I am pleasantly surprised by the selection in the documentary section. Several things there I want to check out from Nat Geographic and such.

    Worked well with my netbook too which is a big plus as I am always on the go to places with a lot of "down" time such as carting my son to guitar practice and band functions.

    Didn't see much of a selection when it comes to more recent movies but it was nice watching Act of Valor last night....for like the third time. Great movie even with the acting performances.

    I could watch that swift boat extraction scene over and over again.
